Fantastic trip with Chris H, 2nd trip with him (3rd trip with Go West). As usual, he met us with big smile and told us jokes and share with us stories or info of each places we visited. Loved his "sand map" the most! simply informative and "entertaining"! Chris H is always a "ready to help photograher".

Matt was absolutely amazing. Full of humour and so so knowledgeable about everything a long the way. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Melbourne (especially because it’s family owned!). Will definitely do it again when we are back.

Matt is the best tour guide and photographer I have had in my journeys. He will share the necessary and interesting stories, histories with you on the way to travel. You will not regret it to travel with him.
